This document collects answers to frequently-asked questions (FAQ) about our computing facilities, but it won't help you at all with your calculus homework. For convenience and faster display, these questions and answers are broken up by subject into separate Web pages.

In some cases, for security reasons, a page may not be displayable outside the utah.edu or math.utah.edu domains. This means that your Web browser must be running on a system whose Internet hostname ends in one of those strings. Even if you are associated with the University of Utah, but connecting from an outside domain, such as local Internet service provider, or from a hotel, Internet café, or remote conference site, you will first need to make a terminal connection to a suitable campus computer, then run a Web browser there, or else use a campus proxy Web server.

In addition to this FAQ document, you may find the campus Office of Information Technology Services Web page useful.
